In The Beginning…

In the beginning

Beginning of all

Complete darkness

No light at all

No sound no matter

Nothing else around

And then HE thought…

Let there be light

No darkness at all

Let there be sound

No silence at all

Let there be Stars

No emptiness around

In such a vast universe

No life at all

No one to talk to

No feelings at all

Existing in this vastness

With no one around

And then HE desired…

Company of intellects

To be loved & love’em all

In a world so beautiful

To be appreciated by all

Wonderful souls with freedom

No limits at all

That’s you and me

With HER all over

To exist and experience

And evolve forever

While HE rests unmoved

In nothingness forever.

Life is a game

 

Life is a game

 To win it

    You must lose it!

Life is a lesson

 To learn it

    You must fail it!

Life is a mystery

  To solve it

    You must know it!

Life is a mission

  To achieve it

     You must forget it!

Life is a struggle

  To fight it

    You must give-up!

Life is a song

  To sing it

     You just keep mum!

Life is a dream

  To see it

      You must not sleep!

Treasure Hunt

I started a long voyage

  In search of the hidden treasure…

With great courage and faith

  I traveled across the oceans

     But in vain…

With all my strength and patience

  I roamed all over the lands

    But in vain…

With all my intelligence and knowledge

  I flew across the skies

    But in vain…

With great despair and sorrow

  I returned back to myself

    Eureka!

The treasure was always there

  Deep within me

    Waiting to be found!
